Intel® Quick Sync Video Tech

Intel Quick Sync Video is Intel's hardware video encoding and decoding technology, which is integrated into some Intel CPUs with the built-in HD Graphics. Intel has put into the graphics processor circuitry quickly encode and decode digital video rather than relying on the computers processor.

This tech is extremely beneficial for those who need to create DVDs or Blu-ray discs, create and edit 3D videos, convert 2D video files into 3D, and convert video for your portable media player and for uploading to your favorite social networking sites as it can save a good deal of time.

Quick Sync, like other hardware accelerated video encoding technologies, gives lower quality results than with CPU only encoders. Speed is prioritized over quality.

Tested by our programmers, the converting speed of the software with Intel Quick Sync Video technology is 2.5X faster than the old software. The graphic below shows all data in details.
